Added a few to my original post, however im not sure if they qualify for 2 reasons, they are photos i took a couple years ago as a series of motel signs and im not sure if they emphesize glass even though they are neon signs made out of glass, so i guess lemme know if there are any problems with either of those points, if not, critique away

I'm not forgetting you guys! I do want to comment, I'm just getting waylaid at work. Some good looking stuff though.

Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

Another round of comments:
FBJ: Love the bong factory shots, very very cool looking. The colors are phenomenal.
Watti: I like the new wine shots. My one comment on them is that you might try increasing the size of the light source, that way you don't see the edges of the light. You can try shooting the light through a big piece of paper, a sheet, shower curtain, or even something like the sheet.
Big Joe: The new stein shot is much better! I think if you found a way to light the rest of the stein a little so that we can see it, that would help make the shot.
PuckHead27: I really like the crazed glass, that sucks for your parents, but it makes for a cool shot.
OVB: Wow, the new shots really look like a false color electron microscope view of something very cool. How many different colors were you working with?
imamonsta: I'll echo FBJ's comments, as well as saying that if there is any way you can get your lighting off camera for that type of shot, I think it would help you out a bunch. The very small size and right on lens axis position of the on camera flash is very hard to work with when shooting glass. I really dig the sign shots! Very cool stuff.
HeShootsNScores: And he certainly does with these shots! I really love the wine glasses being illuminated with the LCD monitors. Well composed, and very well lit. It easily conveys the shape and volume of the glass, which I think is the hard thing to do when shooting glass. I have been finding that that lighting (side lighting with a dark backround) is a winner for glass.
Steve: I like the shot of the neon sign up close, nice composition. I also thing the second Kings mug shot does a nice job of showing the dimensionality of the glass.
DeaderFan: Awesome idea with the glass stones on the LCD display. The way the magnify the display beneath them makes it very interesting. I also really like the marbles on blue, the very uniform pattern in interesting.
Ruely: Love the first shot. For some reason the color timing and light pattern makes me think "Boogie Nights"
RR: I am not sure what the skull guy is, but it is very interesting looking, nice shot!
nocturn: This is interesting, how are you lighting it, flash directly behind? I would be interesting to see what this guy looks like with some different lighting setups as well.
P.I.T.A.: I like shots 1 and 2 the best in your series. That candy dish seems like an intersting subject with it's coloration and curvature. Perhaps you could try playing with the lighting on it a bit to see what you can come up with.
Great shots everybody! I'm hoping to get a few more shots in this weekend, so hopefully (if all goes well) I'll have something to upload monday.
